Miss California Ethnic World and the Kierra Project

The Kierrah Foundation assist young women who have "aged-out" of the foster care system. Many of these women are young mothers themselves. The Kierrah Foundation's objective is to empower former foster girls to become self-sufficient and avoid the pitfalls of aging out of the system which can include poverty, homelessness, victims of domestic violence, substance abuse, prostitution, gang affiliation, aimlessness and automatic slippage into welfare and perhaps the most frightening for these young women, losing their own children to the foster care system.

Daniela Espinoza "Miss California Ethnic World 2010 dedicated her time reading and playing with kids of the Keirra Foundation's "Back to School" Event.
